The episode title, referred to the suave, well dressed Assasin portrayed by R&B singer Ne-Yo (a.k.a. Shaffer Smith). In August 2012, Ne-Yo performed the Michael Jackson hit song "Smooth Criminal" at a concert held in New York City to honor Michael Jackson's birthday of August 29. Michael would have been aged 54.

Adam analyzes a piece of metal found in the ash from the oven, and tells Jo that it is made from galvanized steel. However, the instrument says "steel (Fe3C)" Fe3C is called iron carbide, which is found in steel, but only in small amounts. Galvanized steel is covered in zinc, which does not show up in the analysis. Thus, the piece is made from high-carbon steel. See more »

"Style," And A Disturbing Story
19 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A hit-man with "style" (clothes)?

Yup, and the smooth talker doesn't seem to hesitate to shoot people, either, with one exception (which is why I put the spoiler notice on the review.) This story turns out to be of despicable nature - people selling useless drugs to very ill people, and then, of course, the people die. That's about as low as it gets. Inside this story, we have a friend of Sheldon's kidnapped by the professional hit man with "style." The murderer (Ne-Yo as "The Handsome Man") is looking for information to complete his assignment.

It was nice to see former sexpot Adrienne Barbeau once again. I hadn't seen her in awhile, but she's not playing a sexy woman in this role....quite the opposite.

Once again, an entertaining, fast-moving episode.
